How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Canonical

Filed under
Ubuntu

It used to be that Microsoft was considered the antithesis of open source, but now I would claim that Apple represents the opposite of “open.” Is it possible to create polished and “integrated” apps using open source?

To make this happen, the open source community is going to have to come to grips with the idea that certain leaders are going to arise and start making decisions that aren’t popular in order to achieve a high level of integration, where all the apps seamlessly interact and have a similar look and feel. One such person is Mark Shuttleworth of Canonical.

I doubt anyone reading this is unaware of Mark Shuttleworth. While I rarely see a Linux laptop that isn’t running Ubuntu, Shuttleworth’s efforts have not been without criticism.
